    I love 7s, wish there was more tv coverage of it. Ireland have got quite a tough group. Should be mighty craic.
     
  4. Looks like a good draw for Wales. They should be capable of beating Argentina, Zimbabwe and Uruguay, but we will see.

    What are the IRFU up to with our sevens side? Are they ashamed of it or something? All they have on the website is an out of date squad. All I know about our WC squad is that James Coughlan and Brian Carney are in it. Anybody know any more?

    So, I'm really looking forward to sitting down watching this with a few beers! even at 6:55am :D

    here's a link if anyone is interested?

  13. Shocks galore in the Quarter Finals!

    Wales beat New Zealand 15-14 with a last minute try.
    Samoa beat England 31-26
    Argentina beat South Africa 14-12
    Kenya beat Fiji 26-7

    Who would ever have predicted that the Semi Finals would be Wales v Samoa and Argentina v Kenya!

    Ireland beat Arabian Gulf and Hong Kong to set up a bowl final with Zimbabwe, not bad. Major shocks in the proper competition though, especially Wales beating New Zealand and Samoa!

    Really wanted to see Kenya take the title. It would have been great for the nation and the game as a whole.
